seriously Rob!!! You weren't fucking around with that choice! What are those tires??


PS: I despise that my F650 has a 17"/19" combo.. Tire choices are soo limited..

The bike runs really well now, nothing negative at all.

basically the power up kit, which i think should be done to all of them (i guess they come as they do so they meet legal epa reguirements for all 50 states).
